  • prank week

    The guys keep pranking the girls, because it is Prank Week at PCA. The girls decide they are not going to take it and decide to prank the guys, but their prank goes too far and results in all girls having to leave PCA after the semester ends. Can anyone fix this?

    Good episode; I like when episodes of shows deal with pranks and some of the pranks in this was good. The last half of it was not that interesting for me, but overall it was a good episode, so my final grade would be somewhere in the "B" range. Pretty good episode I thoughtmoreless
  • The boys pull pranks on girls.

    A men's tradition, Prank Week! This episode is kinda similar to Webcam, but the pranks are accutally metioned. I know Zhase/Choey (Zoey and Chase or Chase and Zoey) are a great couple, but this time Chase is accutally disagreeing or unpartnershipped with Zoey. And that is a good thing in the series. Im happy Chase is in love with Zoey still, but also has tradition ways at PCA. Whats in PCA, stays in PCA (Expect for the addition to girls to be added in PCA) This is my review for episode "Prank Week" of tv series, Zoey 101. Peace out- TGH3.moreless
  • returning students pull pranks on the new students aka the girls...the girls dont want 2 just submit to the pranking and they take matters into their own hands..unfortunately it gets out of control and zoey is expelledmoreless

    this was a very adventurous ep like i put in the classification...i loved the pranks...the tp was too basic though..i mean that happens in every show or prank ppl commonly do..i mean how unoriginal is that...the water balloons..eh i saw it in parent trap...not 2 original there either but funny...logan was a jerk though b/c chase had already said they had enough and he does one more whopper balloon..i loved the girls' prank..dressing up the statue in front of the guys' dorm was hilarious...well would have been if it wasnt an important person..zoey takes the wrap for all the girls and theyre grateful...luckily logan is actually nice at the end and devises a plan 2 make the statue pee and then every1 confesses 2 doing it and zoey can stay...love how zoey thought chase came up w/ the plan and hugged him..ok that was my zoey/chase moment 4 the ep and the fact that michael tried 2 convince chase that since zoey was leaving now would be the right time 2 confessmoreless
  • Zoey's in trouble...

    The girls wake up to a surprise: their entire dorm has been covered with toilet paper. When Zoey, Dana, and Nicole swear to hunt down the perpetrators, the guys, Chase, Micheal, and Logan, confess to pulling off the prank. They explain that it is Prank Week, where returning students pull pranks on the new students. The girls say that they will not be easy targets, but Nicole is immediately pranked again.

    In a short scene, Dean Rivers assigns to our male trio the task of looking after the statue of Mr. Bradford, founder of PCA. No trash or "teenage items" are to be allowed. I wonder what he means by "teenage items", but maybe it's better I don't ask.

    We cut to our third prank. All the girls are in the lounge when some guy outside yells for help. It turns out that the call was just to lure the girls outside for a water balloon assault. Zoey keeps her cool for a while, but when Logan saves the last balloon just for her, she declares war on the guys.

    The next morning the guys discovered the statue of Mr. Bradford dressed in drag. While it seems that the prank was a success, the fun quickly stops when Dean Rivers and Bradford's son arrive. Bradford is furious and says all girls at PCA will be expelled after the current term.

    In an act of sacrifice, Zoey takes full responsibility for the prank and requests that the other girls be allowed to stay at PCA. Mr. Bradford accepts. The other girls are all grateful for Zoey's selflessness and throw her a goodbye party, which even the guys join.

    Chase and Zoey share a few cute moments in this scene. While Chase stumbles over his words, Micheal helps him out and says all the guys feel bad about Zoey leaving. He also hands her a PCA bunny, which Chase picked out. Micheal urges Chase to tell Zoey his true feelings about her, reminding him it's his last chance, but in a pattern that emerges over the series, just before he can do so, Quinn's new Quinnvention makes all the lights in the lounge go out, so the moment is ruined.

    The next day, Zoey makes her public apology and is ready to leave PCA, but the guys have a trick up their sleeve. At the push of a button, the statue of Mr. Bradford starts urinating. Logan is the first to take responsibility, but the entire student body joins in, and Chase says that if Mr. Bradford (Jr) expels Zoey, he will have to expel all of them. Bradford relents, and everyone can say.

    Zoey instinctively thanks Chase, but it is revealed the whole thing was Logan's idea. Also, the Quinnvention finally works, but it is no longer needed. Quinn accidentally sets it off anyway, and suddenly there are a hundred sleeping kids on the lawn.

    I love the Zoey/Chase moments in this episode, and the fact that Chase was about to tell Zoey what he truly felt about her. However, I found the plot somewhat unbelievable. It doesn't make sense that the guys could have gotten away with vandalizing the girls' dorm, yet Zoey would be expelled over dressing up the statue. It's also weird how the entire student body stood up for Zoey. However, I still find this an enjoyable episode.moreless

      Zoey: Explain.
      Quinn: Well I just push this button, and it emits a high frequency sound that interferes with human brain waves, causing anyone within one hundred yards to lose consciousness. Shall we try it on the boys?

      Zoey: Aw, it's a bunny with a PCA shirt on it!
      Logan: Chase picked it out.
      Chase: Okay, why tell people?

    • Quinn: (activates her sonic neural neutralizer, causing the lights to go out) Is anybody unconscious?
      Everyone: NO!
      Quinn: (walks and trips over a lamp) Okay, who put that lamp there?

    • Dean Rivers: Who did this? I demand to know this instant!
      Logan: I'll tell you who did it!

      Dana: You wish!
